What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Geek Life, Cake Style

A few times a year John and I go to commune with Our People at local sci-fi and comic conventions. This weekend is one of the big ones here in Orlando, so we've been feverishly finishing up a new costume to wear - because yes, we're THOSE kinds of geeks.

Of course you're just here for cake pictures, though... so here's a cakey hint at what our costume's going to be:

It reminds me of the babe. And Christmas tinsel.

 

And since I've got geekdom on the brain, here's a Missed Mark for you Doctor Who fans:

OoooOOoooo

 

AAAAIIEEEEEEEEE!

 

And one for Batman:

 

This must be after Superman beat him up.

 

Sorry to break it to you, Avengers fans, but it turns out Thor is a real heel:

You are not worthy to lift his... HAMMERTOE.

But hey, at least he's got sole.

(I think the baker did it just for kicks. It's a shoe-in for "weirdest cupcake," don't you think?)

 

For you classic comic fans, here's Batman giving Robin the wedgie of the century:

"Sweet spandex-strangling sausages, Batman, that stings!"

 

And let us never forget:

I have been, and shall always be, mortally offended by this cake. [glare]

 

But to end on a happy note, allow me to present wrecky minion Melissa P.'s daughter, along with the birthday cake she specifically requested:

Princess Hulk.

Now THAT is a Hulk "smash" cake, y'all. AND I APPROVE.

 

Thanks to Tiffani W., Joe H., De C., Sarah B., Leah S., Wendy D., & Melissa P. for raising The Next Generation just right. And hey, see some of you at MegaCon this weekend!

The Bakery At The End Of The Universe

[announcer voice]

Here at The Bakery At The End Of The Universe, we want our intergalactic guests to have a personal connection with their cakes. That's why all our sugary creations are given sentience before serving, so they can introduce themselves before dessert!

"Huh?"

 

To begin your End Of The Universe experience, you'll be treated to the sweetest song and dance number this side of Betelgeuse - and our petit-fours almost always finish before crying and/or spitting up their last meals!

 

Next, the parade of pastry, as each of our delectable kitchen creations tries to convince you to eat them first!

 

They're so happy you're here!

 

They can't wait to be picked!

Those are tears of joy, promise!

 

 

Once you've picked your lucky morsel, it will be whisked to the back for a quick, joyous farewell:

 

....then painlessly chopped up and plated for your dining pleasure:

MMMM.

Now that's sweet!

Yes, The Bakery At The End Of The Universe guarantees a dessert you'll remember for all your lifetimes. So come on by! Starships and Vogon liners welcome. Intergalactic AAA discounts available. Reservations recommended.

You monsters.

 

Thanks to Anony M., John D., Katherine R., Baillie L., Bailey D., Joy M., Rachel L., & Kevin F. for helping me celebrate Towel Day like a total hoopy frood. Now I'm off to eat a salad.
